Baby Come Back

Oui c’est moi, Lizzie, back from her much-deserved break! Eurgh I seriously needed it as the past few weeks have been crazy! I’m so excited to be back not wearing makeup to uni and doing lots of work… Not.

Anyways, today’s post is about my time at MCM Expo! I was working with my bby Pixie at her Pixie Bunny stall and I had so much fun! I met loads of new people despite working behind the stall, and took part in the fashion show representing Agejo-gal. I was so nervous though, so when it was my turn to walk down the ‘catwalk’ I rushed my poses so I could hurry away. How embarrassing ><” Luckily I worked alongside Jada and Rosanna, or I would’ve died in embarrassment.

Here’s me and my lovely Pixie <3

I was also working right behind Charli and Dom who were working at the hentai store and omg she’s got such amazing boobs *_* People couldn’t stop staring at her, and I joked that she’s the reason why they had so many customers hahahaha.

Oh and something really amazing happened. I was serving one of our customers and she looked up at me and exclaimed, “Oh!” I got a bit worried until she asked if I ran a blog called mysticthorn, and told me she was one of my readers >///< I was so happy! It’s such an amazing feeling, and the cutie even asked if she could have a photo so here’s me and her!

I mentioned that I went on the catwalk, didn’t I? And how I was so nervous that I felt like such a fail? Well, here are some photos!

After the catwalk we had some photos taken of us individually and as groups! :3

I absolutely love this photo <3 Me, Jada & Rosanna!

Okay so I’m kind of running out of words so I guess I can let the photos do the talking.

Me wearing one of Pixie Bunny’s rabbit ears! Aren’t they adorable?

A special mention to Svetlana who I finally got to meet after knowing her for seven years!

You could tell I had so much fun by the way that I’m grinning like an idiot in almost all of my photos, d’oh! Oh well…

Look & Outfit

This was my look for the day ~ I woke up super early in order to curl my hair, only for it to die because our darling England seemed to be suffering from a lot of wind & rain this month >_>

Jewellery: MA*RS and Primark
Top: MA*RS
Skirt: MA*RS
Socks: Peacocks
Heels: Dorothy Perkins

I guess that’s all for now! Wow it’s getting cold now isn’t it? So warm up my darlings! Don’t want you all getting ill or anything (like I did the other week ;_;) <3

Love you all! <3

P.S I actually had to cut down on the majority of my photos because there were so many ^^”

 

Last Days of Freedom

It’s that time of year when the summer holidays are coming to the close and everyone goes back to uni. Thank goodness I wrote my previous post, “How To Be A Gyaru & A Student” in time! I hope that you all found it useful and are enjoying your new year at school/college/uni.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how my bank is suffering tremendously from the amount of online shopping I do, MA*RS in particular. It’s such a beautiful brand but I really need to stop buying stuff!

A new idea then popped into mind: why don’t I do a budget gal challenge? I’m thinking of only spending £50 a month on gal and each month I’ll go down by, say, £5 or £10, and see if I can survive (haha). My bank will thank me for it and I could then use that money for uni supplies.

Ah, uni. I miss it so much so I’m really looking forward to going back and studying my final year! I can already see my social life coming to an end but I’m going to work my ass off to make sure I could still see my friends outside of uni & work.

So I guess my shopping trip with Charli & Emi will be one of my last days of freedom and of spending! Charlie had recently gotten back from ‘Merica and I haven’t really spent much time with Emi before, but I had such an amazing day! Was very girly filled with shopping (although I didn’t buy much). I went for the more casual-agejo look because although I do love MA*RS I really need to search for new coords that don’t really rely on that brand. I guess I did cheat a little in my outfit as I attached a MA*RS bow that I bought recently, but oh well! At least I’m trying.

We met up in Chinatown to have some food before heading off to Stratford, bursting with excitement to buy some really cute cat clothes that we saw a couple of weeks back. When we got there… Well, we couldn’t find anything! I was so disappointed but luckily I found this amazing cat t-shirt that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. We then had a look in some other shops before heading to Pink Berry for some healthy yogurt.

Yeah… It ended up being not-so-healthy in the end for me! I had my mind set on getting something with strawberries, kiwi fruit, original yogurt, but that thought flew out the window as soon as the shop assistant asked if I wanted caramel yogurt. I ended up having caramel yogurt with chocolate sauce, Smarties, Belgian chocolate buttons and white chocolate. Not very healthy (and ended up being so sickly).

My “healthy” yogurt
My buys: T-shirt & skirt from Forever21, case from Primark

And that was it! It’s crazy how eating and shopping could take up so much time, but it was lovely nevertheless <3 I can’t wait until the next time I go shopping because I’m going to save up so I could actually buy stuff!

Me & the cuties <3

Look & Outfit

Top: Primark  |  Skirt: Primark  |  Heels: DreamV  |  Bow: MA*RS  | Jewellery: Muse

Guess that’ll be it for today! Kind of a short post, but hey, short and sweet ;D

So… Would anyone else like to join me for this budget gal challenge? I’m hoping to expand it a bit more in my next post of the ways I’m going to cut down on spending. Would be awesome to hear your views on this, and maybe some input on what you do on a budget!

Until next time~

 

 

MA*RS Twins!

I can’t believe how the summer holidays have flown by! It’s been a weeks since my holiday in Germany (which I still have to write about), my birthday is long gone, and you know what? I enjoyed every second of it. This summer holiday has definitely been the best I’ve had in ages because I’ve been able to actually arrange and attend meets as well as visit my family a hell of a lot more. 

Me and my lovely friend Tania decided to meet up to do a MA*RS day just two days after meeting for my birthday gal meet, and went as “twins”! I had so much fun, and it was lovely just being able to spend a day eating, chatting, and taking lots of purikura.

In order of the “twinning” to work we tried to figure out what MA*RS clothes we had that were similar but unfortunately we didn’t have any, so instead we planned to have the same hairstyle (curled pigtails) and wear the same headband!

We met up at this bubble tea place; I was a bit early so I had this gorgeous bubble tea (that I can’t remember the name of ;_;) and some spicy fried tofu!

Sipping on my milk tea as I wait!

When Tania arrived we headed out to get some food because I was a greedy git hahaha. She took me to this restaurant that did massive – and I mean massive – portions. Just take a look at mine!

After our lunch we went to take some purikura!

It seems like the purikura place in London is still yet to close down, but it’s obvious that it’s going to. Most of the booths had been packed away but luckily our beloved Japanese booth was still there <3

It’s so hard to choose my favourites so here are my top three! 

And the rest of them… We took two sets because they were on a special offer and chose to get the bigger ones instead of the usual 16. 

I really enjoyed taking puri with her! We messed around quite a lot and pulled silly poses and it was so much fun! I love those kind of puris <3

Me & My Bby Tania <3333

Because it was still pretty early (ish) we thought a little shopping spree was in order so headed out to Camden Town. I didn’t get anything because I’m desperately trying to save money (which is so not happening right now) and I didn’t really see anything I liked. Tania bought some really cute cat tops and sweater though that I wish I had bought in the end! Oh well.

My feet then started to hurt after a while so we went to a nearby coffee place to have a drink and we were there for aaaaages talking about the most random of things! We soon realised that it was getting really late so we went back to the station and headed home.

Look and outfit:

Top lashes: Sakurina Buty Eye  |  Lower Lashes: Luminous Change (Pixie Bunny)

Headband: Pixie Bunny  |  Set: MA*RS  |
Jewellery: MA*RS (Gorgeous Barbie)  |  Shoes: Top Shop

On the train home I was thinking about my addiction to MA*RS and realised that I really should stop buying that stuff. Ever since I started buying MA*RS I began to think that it was the only way to dress agejo when that’s totally not right! I need to figure out some “everyday agejo” coords that doesn’t rely heavily on MA*RS… For the sake of my bank and my addiction!
So if anyone sees me buying more MA*RS after this week (I had cheekily bought some MA*RS bags and purse) then gimme’ a slap on the wrist! Haha.

Anyway, that’s all for today!

Birthday Gal Meet!

I have about just under an hour of freedom before I hit the road to go to London again; too little time to watch an episode of Supernatural, but just enough to blog!

I mentioned in my previous post that it was my birthday, and this post is about my birthday meet! It was only me and a couple of gals but it was just nice to hang out and see people that I don’t usually see on a daily basis. My boyfriend was round mine for the weekend as well so he came along. Thank goodness there were other guys there that he could talk to!

I dressed up in oraora this time to take a break from the usual agejo, and it was so nice and refreshing! Here’s my look for the day:

Me and my boyfriend on the way to the meet! 

There was me, my boyfriend, Tania, Alex, Rin, Rin’s boyfriend Jamie, Wib, Silver, Emmie, and Jess! It was Silver’s leaving do yesterday but I couldn’t make it, so I was glad that I could meet her before she left to Japan.

We were originally going to take purikura but boy it was like a sauna in that place. Having no air conditioning didn’t help and we all decided that it was best to leave it otherwise we’d melt in there. Instead we had some bubble tea at Boba Jam and then headed off to get some food at Mr Taro. I had a yummy chicken ramen.

After that we went to a nearby park to relax for a little bit. Unfortunately we hadn’t taken a group photo but here are photos of me and some of the girlies:

Jess, Wib, Rin & Me
Me & Tania

Tania got me a really cute headband that she handmade and is also selling at her store Pixie Bunny! I’ve been eyeing it up for ages and was so happy when she said she got me a birthday present >///< Love you bby <333

It was starting to get a bit chilly (because despite it being sunny, it was pretty windy) so we decided to wander around and see if we could find somewhere to sit, and instead found a Pret-A-Manger which was even colder because of the air conditioning -_- everywhere else was just so busy! We sat there for about an hour before making our way to the karaoke place which was about 20 minutes walk away, and that’s where Silver, Emmie and Jess said their goodbyes ;_;

So now it was just me, my boyfriend, Tania, Alex, Wib, Rin & Jamie! As soon as we got into the karaoke place we took a picture because the kind lady there gave us a medium room (only charging us for the small room price) and an extra 20 minutes! How amazing is that?

Alex, Tania, Jamie, Rin, Me, Wib & my boyfriend. We all look as we were possessed or something 😛 

After an hour and 20 mins of singing I was feeling a bit peckish so we went upstairs to have some yummy food. It’s actually a really good restaurant and it looks really posh as well!

I had chicken katsu curry! Yummy!

And that was it! By the time we had finished it was past half 8 so everyone decided that it was a bit too late to do anything else and headed home. It was such an awesome day, and I loved the karaoke because I could behave like an idiot along with everyone else, haha! My favourite song was Barbie Girl…

Hey There, Birthday Girl!

Right so I was going to write a blog post about my holiday but that went horribly wrong – because I am an idiot and didn’t press save – so instead I’m going to write one about my birthday!

It was a pretty quiet one because I had just come back from holiday a couple of days before so really couldn’t be bothered to host a big party. Instead I spent it with my sister and boyfriend and it was so perfect!

I started the day by dolling up and getting ready because I, unlike all of the other people in the house, was actually awake because I was so excited. I hadn’t felt such excitement on my birthday since I was a little kiddie and it was such a lovely feeling. Then I realised it was perhaps the last day I could behave like a kid as now I’m a proper “adult” ;_;

This was my look for the day and my outfit! I finally had the chance to wear my MA*RS dress from Gorgeous Barbie <3 I absolutely love that shop, but I really should stop buying from them because I’m not a billionaire just yet ;D

Angel Eye & Luminous Change

Now onto my presents! I can’t believe how lucky I was this year, I’m so happy with everything >///< I think what mattered most was because the people I loved were there <3

I unfortunately missed out a necklace ;_; 

I then went to go shopping! I didn’t really buy that much as we only had an hour before the film started. These were my buys:

From good ol’ Primark
All from Miss Selfridge
New Look (sorry for the blurriness!)

Then we had to rush off to watch Monsters University! It was such a good film; they tied up all of the loose ends, and the story was just so brilliant that I really wouldn’t mind watching it over and over. Here’s the trailer if you don’t know what I’m talking about 😀

And now for the dinner! We all had a meal at a local pub/restaurant and wow they really didn’t disappoint. I’ve had dinner there before but it wasn’t brilliant, but they really surprised me this time. I had some yummy steak tehe.

As I was finished eating the waitress came over… With a birthday cake fully lit with candles. I was so incredibly surprised because we were all talking about ordering a desert and the waitress just acted like normal by bringing out desert menus. It was such a lovely gesture ;_; <3

My Boyfriend, Me & My Sister <3

And then that was it! It was a fantastic day and I’m so happy that I spent it with my sister and boyfriend <3 Thank you so so much guys for making my day really special ^3^ <3 <3

Chasing The Sun; UK Gal Meet!

I hosted meet in London last Sunday, and I must say that it was definitely a success! While there weren’t as many people there as we would normally have, everyone was so lovely and I had such a relaxing time. I think it was the first time where we weren’t rushing to go anywhere, and spent at least a couple of hours just relaxing at a park in the sun.
Sun?! Yes, Britain finally has some sun! I’ve been feeling quite depressed over the past couple of days – even went so far to think about selling my gal brand items – because of the sh*tty British weather, but today it proved me wrong. We finally reached the highs of 26 degrees celsius which we haven’t had in such a long time.

At the meet there was me, Marie, Yamii, and Finlay and three other new people that I haven’t met before Wib, Kei Kei and Jade. We first headed out to get some food at this Japanese restaurant called Mr Taro as the purikura machines were closed for lunch. Even though I’ve been to London a fair amount I’m still a bit of a n00b when it comes to food so it was nice to go somewhere new. Marie’s recommendation was perfect; the food was yummy and at a very good price!

I had Chicken Ramen and they used this delicious marinade on it *_*

Then we did the usual purikura because it is thankfully still open. Whether or not it’s closing is still up in the air so hopefully it’ll stay for a little longer… I don’t know what I’ll do without it ;_;

This is my favourite one hahaha!

We took full advantage of the good lighting and snapped some more photos!

It was the first time I wore this dress because of the crappy season, and I’m in love with it *_* can’t get enough of MA*RS! I originally wore this with over-the-knee socks but it got way too hot.

After purikura we were all dying for a drink and went on to get some Bubble Tea from Cuppa Cha! My name was “Tinkerbell” this time, although I forgot to take a photo of it ;_;
While we were waiting we pulled faces at Kei Kei who was waiting outside, and she took this amazing photo of us <3

So we were just sitting outside in Chinatown when this Chinese guy went up to Marie and asked if he could stroke her feet o_o He obviously had a serious foot fetish because he had to stroke it twice and stroked mine as well… That’s when we decided it would be nice to leave Chinatown haha!

The rest was bit of an improvisation because we didn’t really have anything planned which was great because it turned out to be a very relaxing day! We did head out to Japan Centre though as I wanted to get my hands on a Ageha magazine but it turned out to be ridiculously expensive so I didn’t bother. It was so hot that we decided to have a sit down at a nearby park next to Buckingham Palace, and spent the rest of our day there 😀

So here’s my makeup and outfit shots:

My original outfit!
Dress: MA*RS | Jewellery: Muse | Socks: Primark | Shoes: Dorothy Perkins

I had such an awesome time. I think this was the first meet where we really relaxed and just chilled out beneath the summer sun (oh how poetic). I think I would definitely do a meet like this again! Especially because there are so many lovely people in the UK gal comm <3 I love you all! <3

That’s all for today! A bit of a photo spam but what the heck, you love it really ;D

Black & Gold: Meetup with Charli!

On Tuesday I met up with one of my closest friends, Charli! I haven’t seen her since October and because she’s going to Japan soon for a couple of weeks I wanted to see her before she went~ I really miss seeing her, and we’ve both agreed to meet up more often now that I’ve settled in a sort of timetable thanks to my new job 😀

For some stupid reason I woke up ridiculously early and I realised that my promise ring had disappeared! ;_; I had been wearing it for over two years, and I still can’t find it.. I’m so heartbroken because although I had misplaced it a couple of times I always found it within ten minutes. I had searched every nook and cranny within this room (as that was where I had put it before I went to sleep) but it’s nowhere to be found! ;_;

Because of that I couldn’t go back to sleep, and although me and Charli said that we would go all casual I decided to try out sujimori. It was a massive fail so I tried doing some flicks instead, but even then it wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be so I quickly curled the bottom. Apparently having sujimori with straight hair is a lot harder than with curly hair so next time I’ll just curl it.

Tried out a new eye make technique: Cat Eye! Meow~

So after all of that chaos I was ready to go and meet her! We went to purikura first but it was still closed so we headed out to go to Japan Centre but they didn’t have any magazines we wanted, so we went to get some food at Suki (this cute little Japanese restaurant in Chinatown). I ordered Tempura Ramen and had forgotten just how much there was o_e

Purikura was then open so we went and took some purikura together 😀 <3 I love taking purikura with Charli because of how we just improvise and come up with the most random poses ever.

These were my favourites:

Then took a picture while we were waiting for the purikura to print out :3

Her friend then came along to join us and I went to get my first ever bubble tea! They had opened a new place called Cuppa Cha right across from the purikura, and I had Jasmine Milk tea. It was so delicious!

We went to get food again because it was around dinner time and Charli’s friend was hungry so we went to the Little Korean. I had some crispy tofu and miso soup and it was so nice <3 I want to learn how to cook them!

We walked around London for a while, but then it was time to head home. I had so much fun though and I miss Charli so much ;_; Can’t wait until I see her again!

OOTD:

Top: Primark; Hoodie: Listen Flavour; Belt: Yumentebo; Tights: Select;
Shorts: Reveal; Boots: eBay; Earrings: Muse

I guess that’s all for today folks! Wow I had taken so many pictures o_o So sorry for the photo bomb aga! 😛 Well then, until next time 😀

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay

 

(wow this is a really late post… nearly 10pm! Has to be my latest one yet)

Some of you may/may not know that I have finally discovered my style… Agejo!

It’s all thanks to MA*RS really; if I hadn’t started buying MA*RS then I wouldn’t know how much I would fall in love with the brand and the style, so much that I actually want to do agejo for real. I always liked agejo but I was a bit scared of it and that it would never ever suit me. But I guess it never hurt to try it out!

I’m not going to wear MA*RS everyday because I haven’t got a lot of MA*RS items, and MA*RS is an extremely expensive brand so I’ll probably be broke for the rest of my life, aha. I’m going to dabble in other brands to help me build up my wardrobe because it’ll be boring just to stick with MA*RS (beautiful as it is) so I’m going to look for GOLDS Infinity and also at stores near me. Stockings, cute handbags, heels, accessories… Anything that doesn’t break the bank really! 

I’ll probably talk more of my goals and things in a future post or even in small posts on Tumblr… Not too sure just yet. 

Anyways, enough of that, here’s my most recent coord! I went to Cosmo with my family and decided to doll up for it :3

Dress: MA*RS, Necklace: DiDepux, Earrings: Muse,
Stockings: Primark, Heels: Dorothy Perkins

There has been a few discussions floating around about wearing no circle lens… So here I’ve not worn any lens to prove that you can still be gal without them! 😀

Please ignore how tired my eyes are! Had a really early start and long drive ;_;
Upper Lashes: Jewerich no.2
Lower Lashes: Diamond Lash Baby Eye

Ooh I’ve also downloaded an app on my phone that lets me create collages! Here’s one of my look and my full coord as well as makeup 😀

And a final picture of me and my sis 😀 <3

Oh yeah you know how I said I wouldn’t spend for around a month? Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. I went along and bought another MA*RS dress that is due to arrive soon. I can’t wait *_*

Anyways I guess that’s all I have for today! My eye has been messing up – again – but I still have a few posts lined up for you all ;D

 

 

Weekend avec ma sœur

It’s been way over a year since my sister last visited me, so a couple of weeks back we decided that she’ll stay over for a weekend during the half term! I was so excited as it has been ages since I had a girly time with her.

We were extremely lazy though and spent a lot of time in front of the TV with hot chocolate, but on Sunday (last Sunday that is) we dolled up just a little bit to go to town for some window shopping. We took a while to get ready though as I was feeling really lazy and couldn’t be bothered to rush into dolling up (plus I was gonna’ doll up later anyways so didn’t go full-out gal).

Chillin’ in my onesie
Tried out a new eye make technique

I told myself not to spend a lot but I couldn’t help myself with these pair of shoes *_* Luckily that was the only thing I bought though! I was being pretty strict on myself and I’ve made the goal of not buying anything at all for the rest of this month and maybe until next month. I’m totally going to regret that goal aren’t I.

Me & my sis <3

That night we headed to Wagamama and I had Itame and the white chocolate and ginger cheesecake! Was so yummy.

This was my look for that night! Obviously I had the same eye make and things, but I just touched everything up and did my contouring etc.

I recently bought a faux fur scarf and it arrived just before my sis came down!
It really keeps everything stylish and warm at the same time.

And then that was it! We only had one proper day to do anything because the next day I was driving back to my hometown with her blasting some Within Temptation (which she didn’t mind, surprisingly).

I guess that’s all for today’s post! I’ve got a few in the queue as I had quite a lot going on and a lot to tell you all 😀

Keep smiling <3

p.s. Can everyone please take a moment to post in my poll please! Would be great, thanks <3

Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year guys!

I know that it was in fact three days ago but thought I’d better say it late then never ;D

My boyfriend came down to see me for the weekend so we celebrated both Valentines and Chinese New Year! We decided not to get each other anything for Valentines because it’ll be our anniversary soon~ So we’re saving up for money for then 😛

Friday and Saturday were spent watching Sherlock – yes I have converted him to be a Sherlockfan ;D –  because I had uni and then work on Saturday, but on Sunday I drove over to the Wing Yip and bought loads of Chinese food! It’s been too long <3 I bought tons of dumplings and mantou… I think it might last me for quite a while ;D I was going to take photos but didn’t really have the time.

In the evening we went out to Cosmo! We were originally going to go to this other place but we realised that we had booked it at another city because the website didn’t state that it wasn’t in our hometown >< But Cosmo was still really nice! It’s much smaller than the one in my hometown but the food was delicious. I took full advantage of the Eton Mess ;D

I wore my complete MA*RS set and my new necklace! I was going to wear the bracelet but it’s slightly – ever so slightly – too big so I need to find a way to adjust that ><

I wasn’t too sure if it was okay to wear this because it started snowing, again. Eurgh I thought that I had finally escaped the snow and rain but HELL NAW.

Set: MA*RS
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins
Jewellery: Muse and Di Depux

Upper lashes: Jewerich no.2
Lower lashes: Beauty Eye by Diamond Lash

Okay so I guess that’s all for now! Hope you all had a brilliant New Year 😀 I did!

FAQ

 

After quite a long time of wanting to do this, I’m finally writing up my FAQ/Q&A post!

These are the questions I have collected throughout my blog, Tumblr, FB, etc. that people have asked quite a lot of the time so I can just redirect people to this post when the same question has been asked again. 

How tall are you?

I’m 165.5cm (so I’m actually quite short).

How did you find Gyaru? When did you start dressing it?

I found Gyaru purely through Google; I used to like Lolita (but never really dressed it) and I wanted to look for something similar that was more wearable. That’s when I found Hime Gyaru and a couple of days afterwards I discovered all of the other substyles of Gyaru. That’s when I started dressing Gyaru-kei and went on to experiment with lots of different styles. So I guess I started dressing it like a couple of months after finding it, and also when I started this blog!

What other styles of Gyaru do you like?

I’m a bit of a style chameleon when it comes to Gyaru as I find that I pretty much like all of the styles. If I did have to choose one, however, my main style would definitely be agejo. 

Would you ever try Manba?

It’s not really my thing so no I don’t think I will. I know some people who rock it but in my personal opinion that style has died down to be replaced by a more updated version, tsuyome/96GAL.

What inspires you in Gyaru?

When I first found Gyaru I was immediately in awe of their massive eyes and beautiful lashes, and when I learnt that it was just circle lens and false lashes. I have “typical Asian”  lashes where they point downwards so they never ever curl, and I was jealous of my sister who had gorgeous long ones so false lashes really helped me out.

I also really like the way Gyarus carry themselves and I longed for that same confidence! I’ve still got quite a bit to go but I’m getting there.

What lashes do you normally wear?

This keeps changing according to how I feel but my favourites are Twinkle Lash Sexy Eye and Ageha for uppers. My taste in lowers keep changing too but I always fall back on Decorative Lash Sexy Eye (which is now gone forever *sobs*) when I can’t decide on what to wear.

What are your favourite Gyaru brands?

MA*RS is a definite favourite and is the only brand that I like despite my many style changes. I also like Liz Lisa to get my himekaji fix, and “normal” brands like Miss Selfridge, Boohoo and Missguided.

What makeup products do you normally use?

I showed my current favourites in this post here: “What’s In My Makeup Bag?” However I will be updating this very soon.

Are you in a Gyaru-sa? Are there any in the UK?

I sure am! Myself and my friend Wib have co-founded QueenE gyarusa, which consists of the lovely Kei, Rachel and Laura. We’ve had a few meets together since forming our circle, and you can read our first ever meetup here.

Got any more questions to ask me? Feel free to send me a message to my Facebook Page, or even my Twitter

Royal Order & Gal Meet

Is it too late for me to say, “Happy New Year!” ? 

I only just realised that I hadn’t said it in my previous post, so please forgive me for such belated greetings! I hope you’ve all had a fantastic Xmas and New Years, and that many of you are working on your resolutions ;D

I am getting used to doing this posting-on-a-Sunday malarky, but it means that I have lots to write about! (That’s if anything interesting has happened) This post will be about two things; Royal Order and the Gal Meet!

Yes I am now in a gal circle! Established in August 2012, Royal Order ♛ is made up of five members to complete a close knit nago-cir located in the UK. We haven’t been able to announce it sooner because of unforeseen circumstances, but now we are finally out in the open!

Our members are: Myself, Amelie, Jada, Bunny and Charli! Here’s our Facebook & Tumblr

To celebrate, we held a Gyaru meet to go New Years shopping in London to get all of the sales! Unfortunately there wasn’t much to buy as shops were basically putting very yucky clothes on sale when all of the pretty ones were tres expensive. How annoying!

I also couldn’t find anything because I’m now so used to buying things online that I didn’t actually bother looking around. Whoops. But I had a fantastic time anyway! 😀

My make!
West One jumper, New Look vest, Julia’s Boutique belt, Quiz jeans, Dorothy Perkin’s boots
Upper lashes: Angel Eye
Bottom lashes: Baby Eye

Here are the photos of the meet~ I didn’t really take many because I was too busy catching up with people :3 Basically I was being a wonderful hostess along with my Jada ;D

We had to wait for aaaaages to get into Wagamama! Here’s what Yamii did while we were waiting ;D She’s so cute ! <3 Btw Yamii is my lover, and we are going to have 4638358965 babies.

And then we were actually able to queue up and get a table! There were 20 of us altogether so we like took over three. Unfortunately we had to split but I made sure to go round to the other tables to make sure everyone was okay. 

Me & Jada! Miss her so so much <3

After I had eaten Alex was joking around saying I was a failure because I didn’t drink up my soup. So we were having a debate of whether or not I should slurp the soup up like a true Japanese person or just leave it. When I turned around… Well, I didn’t realise Tania was taking a photo when I pulled a face.

Then it was time to actually go shopping! I was so good that I didn’t actually buy anything. Oh well!

Me and my lover Yamii got married! Lololol, check out our bling ;D
Perhaps my favourite photo! Why was I in mid-speech ;_;

I guess that’s all for today! Until next Sunday where I might actually write something about my New Years Resolutions *so late*

I Feel Like A Chameleon; My Gyaru Wardrobe

I’m still not sure where I’m heading style-wise, and when a friend asked which style I would like to go for I replied: I’m a bit of a chameleon when it comes to gyaru; I tend to like and wear all styles.”

And it’s true; I really do like all of the substyles of gyaru that I just can’t stick to one! It’s a bit annoying though because then I’m spending loads of money on different kind of clothes rather than saving up and buying only those that fit the substyle that I’m in. Guess I can’t really help it.

But I need to stop buying clothes! It’s crazy how much I lurk on gyaru sales to find items that I want to get my hands on even though I really shouldn’t be spending. To help myself out a little bit I went along and gathered all of the clothes that I thought were gyaru-suitable and have taken pictures to show y’all 

my gyaru wardrobe!

Although most of these are brand items, I have thrown in some non-brand stuff like clothes from New Look, Miss Selfridge etc. Unfortunately I have missed quite a lot of clothes so I think that I shall do another post!

This has kept me motivated in staying gyaru and just trudge on, even through the rough patch that I’m going through.

See ya’ next time I guess!

Back in London!

The wonderful Emilie is leaving in a couple of days to go to Japan for a year, and she hosted a leavers get-together in London to say goodbye to everyone. Luckily I wasn’t working on that day – as I’ve been working the past couple o’ Saturdays – so I could see her one last time! I’m going to miss her a lot; she’s such a nice person and I wish her good luck in Japan!

This was my look for that day! Wanted to wave my hair again as I’m beginning to fall in love with that hairstyle <3 I’m going to do an outfit post with more details so keep your eyes out for it!

So I met up the lovely Charli and Emi at Leicester Square (had a bit of a hassle trying to sort out where to meet as I kept having to change plans so that it would be easier for the both of us OTL) so that we all went together to Hyde Park as we haven’t really been to that area before. Luckily while we were wondering which exit to go to I heard a voice calling my name and it was Emilie! I was so happy to see her! She saved us from having to make a decision and wander around lost lolololol. Her boyfriend and his brother, Alex and Dominic, were with her too so I finally was able to meet them! I didn’t actually know they were twins… I thought they were just brothers ^^”

We hung around for a while waiting for the others – Dodo, Chris and a few others turned up – and then headed to the park where we were asked to have a photo by this guy in this old-style army uniform o_o Was so strange! We managed to find a nice spot by the trees… Which kept attacking us with leaves and flowers so let’s just say that it was not good for someone with a) hayfever and b) having not taken their hayfever tablets. And guess who that was -_- My throat went all funny at one point and I lost my voice D:

Me and Charli herp-derping

Me and Emilie! Going to miss this girly <3

After spending some time in the park I headed off with Charli and Emi because my throat was just so annoying and my eyes were acting up. We walked around London for a bit before Emi had to go so me and Charli decided to go to that Japanese Restaurant – which I now know is called Suki! – and then took some purikura! <3

My delicious Miso Ramen that I had at Suki!

Our purikura! I loved all of the photos so just decided to upload the whole set rather than having each photo separately uploaded 😛 I loved them all <3

We stopped by this korean store and there was a panda outside!

We went off to Piccadily to check out Japan Centre and while we were walking around this guy came up to me asking if I wanted to take a picture with Shrek, I was like, “What?” and he then asked where I was from. When I said I was from England he said, “From England? I haven’t seen such a beauty in England.” LOLOLOL. But yeah. He started asking places where he could go and Charli saved me from replying as I just like didn’t say anything, and finally his friend came so we could escape!
Before we knew it it was around 8pm so I headed off home! I was so so tired, but oh wells! Had lots of fun! :3

Wow, sorry for the essay of a blog post… Just realised how much I wrote OTL

Day Out with Charli!

Argh this is so so late OTL
At the end of May I went to London to visit the lovely Charli! I have met her once before at the Pink Marble meet, but haven’t actually been able to talk to her properly then ;_; So when I made a post about wanting to meet people, I was so happy when she said she wanted to meet me! ^3^

I had curled my hair the day before, but seeing as the weather was so crap/rainy/windy I decided to just put it as a side pony, going for the très chic onee look. It’s been ages since I went for that kinda’ style as I’m usually doing the more darker stuff, so it was a nice change!

When I got to London I was rushing towards Chinatown when I saw her! It was so scary… ’cause for a few moments we were walking next to each other before realising that it was me/her! So funny~ We first headed to a clothes shop (which sold really cute liz lisa-inspired items, but… Didn’t really suit me :P) that was pretty darn expensive – damn London – and then to take some purikura! :3 Here are my faves <3

After our purikura session we went to this lovely Japanese restaurant (Charli please lemme’ know the name! I love that place ;_;) that I haven’t been to before. When I saw the seating arrangements I was  thrown into the culture of Japan and I loved it! But then I said, “Erm… How are we supposed to sit?” And then she told me that there’s a hole where we can put our feet in so it forms like a sort of chair o_O So crazy and hard to describe D:

I ordered some prawn ramen, and underestimated how large the portions were. At first I thought they were bringing out mine and Charli’s food, but it was only mine o_O Really worth the money!

We went shopping afterwards (I need to take a picture of my buys… Maybe in the next post or something >_>) on Oxford Street when it started to rain again ;_; I swear the weather is nearly always horrible when I wanna’ meet friends! OTL

It was half six by the time we finished, and seeing as our train was around 7 we decided to kill some time. We were starting to get hungry anyways so Charli showed me this Haagen Daas (sp?) restaurant! Was so yummy *_*

I kept pulling this face at her for the whole day…

hello little children *perv* ;D

After that I headed home~ I had such a lovely time with her! ^3^ I can’t wait to meet her again… She’s such a sweetie ^^

Guess that’s all for now! I shall be posting an Outfit Post in my next one with some close-ups I wore in meeting Charli ^^
